PITTSBURGH COMMUNITY BROADCASTING AAA WYEP/PITTSBURGH has upped morning host KYLE SMITH to Director/Program-Audio Content for broadcast and wyep.org. SMITH -- who will continue in mornings until a replacement is found -- will be responsible for creative concepts in regard to broadcast programs, Internet content, and WYEP Community Broadcast Center venue programming.
GM LEE FERRARO said, "In his eight years as morning host and producer, KYLE has been dedicated to WYEP's mission and to serving a critical mass audience of radio listeners with excellent radio programming. Additionally, he has trained numerous interns who have gone on to do quality radio for WYEP and other stations. KYLE has been the quintessential team player, and I'm happy that he's decided to take on this critically important role at WYEP."
Prior to joining WYEP in DECEMBER 1998, SMITH was both on-air host and producer at what was then called "REV105" in MINNEAPOLIS from 1994-1997.
"I'm excited to take on this new position at WYEP," SMITH said. "I'm looking forward to utilizing the WYEP Community Broadcast Center, motivating and leading a creative staff, and fulfilling the mission of 91.3fm WYEP."
ROSEMARY WELSCH remains PD and will now be able to devote her time on programming rather than splitting her time on administrative tasks, which SMITH will now handle.
